9. Clean the rings thoroughly and place one of them inside the cylinder, approximately 1/2 inch down from the top of the liner (Fig. 66). Take the piston and insert it into the cylinder upside down until the top of the piston hits the ring (Fig. 67). Then push the piston down another 1/2 inch. This will make sure the ring is set squarely inside the cylinder. Remove the piston and measure the width of the gap at the
ends of the rings as shown in Fig. 68. This distance should be from .075" to .085." Reinstall the piston and push the ring halfway down into the cylinder. Remove the piston and measure the end gap again.
